The new industry standard of securities trading...a game?

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Post » Sun Mar 22, 2015 8:20 pm

During my recent expeditions on the Internet, in hopes of finding a good enough start up to explore, I encountered "TEXGAMES*", also known as "Trading Exchange Games". The former is a company seeking legal and professional advice/assistance from an investor with enough capital to jump start the project. The game involves objects such as bananas, balls, or comets to mimic the behavior of a security (in this case a currency) in real time. It then portrays this on the player's screen, who places a "bet" on which way the object will go and how much. The games can be found on the website (Tex-games.com) and a Prezi is available there also. TG* will use a patented method as described above. A full description of the games, contact coordinates and the Prezi are all found on the website: (Tex-Games.com). This is the future of securities trading and will open the doors of markets to people with little to no experience.

Why even bother with gamification? Just provide the data, and create a system to allow a player to fake-trade.
They can then track the money they didn't make... or loose.

Yes, but the whole point is to draw in customers with actual games. This is more of a gambling thing and the people behind this make money through commission not through the loss/gain of the player's balance so this is just linked to a currency, the chart of which/behavior need not be studied before as this is a game of chance (I think) not an analysis.

Well I laughed at the idea of "Fantasy Football" when I first heard of it. And now it is growing into a multi million sub genera of online gambling. I will watch this but I don't think id be ready to jump in bed with them just yet.
